Radcliffe answers 20 questions for a Playboy interview. He talks about growing up with Harry Potter, his height, and masturbation.
Yeah, I was like every other teenager in that sense. My favorite line about masturbation is Louis C.K.’s, something like “I found out about it when I was 11, and I didn’t skip a day.” I think I started very early—before my teens. But not when I was on set. I wasn’t going, When is Alan Rickman going to nail this scene so I can run back to my trailer? There’s another feeling, again perfectly described by Louis C.K.: that fear just after you’ve jerked off that everyone knows what you did. It would have been embarrassing to walk back on set and look the dignitaries of British acting royalty in the eye, knowing what I’d been doing.

If you take those opportunities when they’re given to you and try to capitalize them, then hopefully word gets out that you’re not content to rest on your laurels.
